Lana Del Rey shares snippet of new song
After experiencing “complex feelings” whilst watching tensions with North Korea mount
The Hollywood noir singer has shared a clip of a new song via Instagram today (18 April). The song currently has no name.
Following on from her attendance at Coachella this weekend, the singer says, “I found myself compelled to visit an old favourite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song”.
Watch the segment below.
I’m not gonna lie- I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w North Korea mount. I find It’s a tightrope between being vigilantly observant of everything going on in the world and also having enough space and time to appreciate God’s good earth the way it was intended to be appreciated. On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favorite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song. I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual’s hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run. Hope everyone has a nice day, with love from California
A release date for Lust For Life is yet to be announced, with the singer having previously stated that it’ll be “coming soon”. So far, Del Rey has released a trailer for the album, along with the artwork and the single Love.
In a rare interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, Del Rey shared that the upcoming album will be “more socially aware” with the singer “wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience”.
